NWN: The signs are looking ominous as to the perpetrators in this appalling crime. Answers on a postcard as to their racial grouping. Their lack of any description by the police and media is also indicative. There are many somalians and other immigrant riff raff living in this area, which has hit the headlines lately as a welfare blackspot - it is the infamous Falinge estate area !
A TEENAGER was dragged into bushes and raped twice as she walked home after a night out in Rochdale over the weekend.
Police were called to the Lidl supermarket car park in Spotland Road shortly after 2.30am on Saturday, after a 17-year-old reported she had been raped.
The girl was dragged from the street into some bushes by three men and held down while two men raped her.
Detectives are examining CCTV footage from area as there are no descriptions of the offenders at this stage.
Detective Inspector Steve Earnshaw, of Rochdale CID said: “This was a horrendous attack.
“I’d like to reassure people we’re doing all we can to find who’s responsible for this serious sexual assault, but it is advisable for women to take precautions for their own safety, such as not walking out by themselves late at night and, if they must do, to stick to busy areas.
“Anyone with any information should call Rochdale CID on 0161 856 4646 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.”
